Chris Hedges: The Great Delusion

Princeton, New Jersey (Scheerpost) — Joe Biden and the systems managers of the deep state and empire are returning to power. Trump and his coterie of buffoons, racists, con artists and Christian fascists are sullenly preparing to leave office.

    John Pilger: The Most Lethal Virus Is Not COVID. It Is War

Britain’s Armed Services Memorial is a silent, haunting place. Set in the rural beauty of Staffordshire, in an arboretum of some 30,000 trees and sweeping lawns, its Homeric figures celebrate determination and sacrifice.

On paper at least, last month’s U.S.-sponsored agreements between Israel, the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain were all about peace.

The Abraham Accord, as it is known, is likely to expand the power of…

More Than Just Statistics: On the Future of the Palestinian Discourse 

  More Than Just Statistics: On the Future of the Palestinian Discourse 

Palestine can never be truly understood through numbers, because numbers are dehumanizing, impersonal, and, when necessary, can also be contrived to mean something else entirely. Numbers are not meant to tell the story of the human condition, nor should they ever serve as a substitute for emotions. Indeed, the stories of life, death – and…

  2,000 Days Since It Began, the War in Yemen Is Poised To Turn Even More Deadly

  Decades of Land Grabs Betray Israel’s “Terror Balloon” Justification for Latest War on Gaza

Incendiary balloons, or as Israel calls them, “terror balloons,” have been part of the Gazan resistance toolkit since 2018, and a frequent sight in the skies in the last few weeks. Palestinians fashion these “weapons of grass destruction” from everyday materials, tie them to gasoline-soaked rags or perhaps a homemade explosive, then ignite and release them…
